The making of Adam

The inspiration for my Persona doll Adam came from this set of clothes.
My daughter, Erica Polan looked at the checked shirt and jeans and said “That is for Adam. He is the rurally isolated gifted child”.

I received an Arbee wooden doll making kit from Jan Weiner and a huge bag of quilt filler padding material and a bag of foam heads from Judy Murcutt. Thank you both so much!

I found a red jumper and a hat in the Op Shop and swapped Miranda’s boots for other shoes and gave the boots to Adam.

My husband, Rainer assembled the frame and I dressed it and in this way Adam was created.

What a contrast to the way in which God created Adam!
 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Gen 2:7
